“The Remains of the Antarctic”: Limited Edition Book Available
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, April 30, 2024 @ 09:00 AM (EST)

In February 2023, the Antarctic Climate Expedition (ACE) saw a team of 120 unique individuals—artists, musicians, photographers, writers, activists, policymakers, scientists, politicians and more—embark on a voyage to the world’s southernmost continent. Their mission: increase awareness of the changes that have taken place in the Antarctic as a result of climate change using images, videos, music, paintings, art, science, and educational outreach programs.

One project coming out of that endeavor is the new book The Remains of the Antarctic, a limited edition of which is now available from Australian publisher OceanENvironment Ltd. The 168-page full-color book is produced by Ocean Geographic publisher Michael Aw and includes a foreword by Dr. Sylia Earle, founder of Mission Blue, which served as the principal partner to Ocean Geographic in ACE 2023. In addition to Michael Aw, the principal photographers contributing images to the book include David Doubilet, Jennifer Hayes, Michael Aw, Eirik Grønningsæter, Elaine Lim, Nur Tucker, Renee Capozzola, and Lezlie Brooks Johnson.

About the Antarctic Climate Expedition ACE 2023

The expedition members comprised of a diverse group of people from across the world; artists, musicians, entrepreneurs, business executives, photographers, activists, policymakers, scientists, politicians and writers. Collectively, this diverse team of Antarctic ambassadors shared a common goal to address the effect of climate change in the southern polar region as a direct threat to the future of human life on our planet.

The narratives of ACE 2023 aim to encourage enlightenment in the way people see and understand the current state of climate change, and hopefully catalyse a much-needed paradigm shift from indifference into urgent action. Through photographs, paintings, science, art installations, videos, music, and educational outreach programs, we hope to connect with people around the world to increase awareness of the changes in the Antarctic that are affected by rising air and sea temperatures.
